Althoff, Kreis Bromberg, West Prussia

Althoff is an extension of the town of Koronowo (Polish Krone), just to the north and west of this village. Althoff means old house but we were unable to find that old house. This village is important to me as the Martin Remus family lived here beginning about 1800; this is one of the earliest Remus families to enter this Kreis; this family is shown as family 4 of the Descendents of Adam Remus of Skrznki in Kreis Schwetz and his son Christian of Bukowiec in Kreis Schwetz. Click here for that family tree.

The pictures of Althoff aren't great due to a malfunctioning camera and this being a one street village. So here are two street pictures:

 

 

Here is a 1914 map of the area:
